Additional Notes

Complaint: I recently purchased a 20** ***** ***** from Heritage Chevrolet . When I purchased the vehicle it was equipped with a overhead light with sunglass holder and moveable lights. I recently had the car taken to the dealership after it broke down on in ******** . There was a dispute rather or not the reason for the damage to the axle was from a previous accident that was repaired by ******** ******* **** **** who is affiliated with Heritage Chevrolet. To make a long story short when I got my car back from the dealership the over head light had been changed out with a cheaper type with no sunglass holder. I pointed this out to my sales person Ian at the dealership . He did remember the original equipment and was as shocked as I was. So far the dealership has refused to make this right and I seem to be talking to deaf ears. The light option was one of the main reasons I bought this car and now I feel like I have been taken advantage of .

Desired Settlement: All I want is for the dealership to find the same Light that came with the car and replace it.

Business Response:

I have reviewed this concern with management.  Let me first say that we have every intention to assist the customer on this issue and are at this time still attempting to do so.  *** ***** has had no additional communication with us, Manager or otherwise since her conversation with her sales associate ***.

We would like to communicate directly with her to resolve this issue and I promise we will take good care and satisfy her concerns as we thought we were already in the process of doing.  See below my response based on what I know now.

·         We did sell the ***** to *** *****

·         *** *****’s car was involved in an accident and based on our knowledge was directed to ******** ******* **** **** at her parents request.  Not ours.

·         We are not Affiliated with ******** ******* **** ****.  They are a wholesale customer to our Parts Department and because of their location in ******** ******* we have recommended them to our customers in ********** occasionally.  We did not make this recommendation this time and had no knowledge that she had the accident or the car was in the **** **** until after the visit.

·         We were involved in a referral from the **** **** and the customer after she picked her completed car up because the car also had an axle issue that the **** **** was not originally aware of from the accident and it affected her drivability after pickup and it was necessary to tow.  The Insurance company instructed us to do and approved additional repairs.

·         Our repairs had nothing to do with the inside of the car and we did not change out and lights or sunglass holders

·         We are not aware of what the **** **** may have had to do to the interior of the car. 

·         *** ***** did come and see *** about her current concern.  *** attempted to determine at what point the items may have been changed out. He verified that our work did not include any interior work to the car.  He called the **** **** and was not able to get a response as to what they may had done inside the car.

·         The part that *** ***** wants replace is not a factory installed or ********* item and we had determined after talking to out parts people that it must have been installed by the previous customer that traded the car to us.  *** and the *** ***** agreed at that time that it would take some time to determine what and where we could secure the aftermarket part to replace for her.  It was ***** understanding that she would also look for a comparable part that she was happy with and advise us.

·         *** and our Parts department are still trying to locate a part that is similar or the same to reinstall in the car.  We have also contacted the **** **** again to get their assistance as it appears that the part must have been removed and replaced during the accident repairs.

·         We will continue to try to find a solution to her concern and will help get the appropriate parts.  I have instructed my Management team and *** that even if the **** **** does not participate in the replacement we will handle this for customer satisfaction as was our original intent.


We have every intention to secure and install or have the **** **** install the appropriate replacement item once we secure that which is acceptable to *** *****.  ***, my Parts Manager **** ***** and Service Manager **** ****** will follow-up and get this taken care of.


Thank you for your understanding

Additional Notes

Complaint: I dropped my 2005 ***** ********** off for repairs at Heritage Chevrolet because the engine light was on and to get a front end alignment. The service advisor ****, drove the vehicle and also advised me that the airbag light was on and the vehicle was slow starting and did I want these things checked out as well, I agreed. No mention of A/C and heat on at same time. **** called about 2 days later to say the sensor for the engine light needed replacing, a coil for the airbag, and a battery, aroung 1,590.00. I asked her to fax me something for the repairs and she faxed me a statement because I was going to my credit union and try to get the money. I called her the next day to say I was only prepared to get the sensor and the front end alignment done at this time. I paid 921.72 today and picked up the Avalance, did not even drive off their lot when I turned on the A/C and noticed that the heat and A/C was blowing at the same time. I went back and told **** what was going on and she came out to the truck and turn the knob to say I had it on the wrong setting, I accepted that, got a 1/2 mile away and the same thing, heat and A/C blowing. I called to say I was going to drop it off Tuesday and she said that the mechanic did not do anything to the A/C. I don't know what he did I just know that there was repairs done on my receipt that was not authorized and when I dropped the truck off the a/c was just fine. There is a lot of deception going on here. If you operate as a business things should be done ethically.

Desired Settlement: I would like the money charged for a Gasket Kit and my air conditioner restored back to the way it was.

Business Response:

I have recieved your information and will get right back to you on details.

Business Response:

Dear ******* *******


In re: *******


I have reviewed the concern referenced above with our ******* *******, **** ****** and ********* ******* ******** **** ******* who actually assisted the customer.  I feel we have a misunderstanding of the charges on her bill based on the language in her concern.  The gasket kit is a part that is necessary when replacing the sensors that were approved.  The customer also approved a front suspension alignment and authorized us to check two other areas of concern on which she declined repairs.  We did not charge a diagnostic fee on the two declined repairs.  The bill presented her at time of vehicle pick-up was consistent with the estimate that she approved and consisted of only the sensor repair and the front suspension alignment.  Of greater concern to me is her feeling that we worked on her A/C.  When she called back and expressed her concerns about the A/C system, we set an appointment for her to bring the vehicle back today.  As yet, she has not shown up for the appointment.  Certainly we would like the opportunity to look at the A/C system and address her concerns.  ****, ****, and myself have attempted to contact her today.  Thank you for bringing her concern to our attention.  We stand ready to address and remedy this concern.

I will like u to get involved with my resolution, I will fax over the documents, stating that the reciept did not mention anything about the gaskits because I would have told them it was already done. I have a reciept for it. I dont know much about mechanic talk, but I know what I was told and not told.I dont want them to look at my truck any more because I dont trust them.
